These are a few of my favorite things: #27 (That don’t impress me much by Shania Twain)

I’ve known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
But you’ve got being right down to an art
You think you’re a genius-you drive me up the wall
You’re a regular original, a know-it-all

Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else

Okay, so you’re a rocket scientist
That don’t impress me much
So you got the brain but have you got the touch
Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright
But that won’t keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don’t impress me much

I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket
And a comb up his sleeve-just in case
And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughta lock it
Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place

Oh-oo-oh, so you think you’re something special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else

Okay, so you’re Brad Pitt
That don’t impress me much
So you got the looks but have you got the touch
Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright
But that won’t keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don’t impress me much

You’re one of those guys who likes to shine his machine
You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in
I can’t believe you kiss your car good night
C’mon baby tell me-you must be jokin’, right!

Oh-oo-oh, so you think you’re something special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else

Okay, so you’ve got a car
That don’t impress me much
So you got the moves but have you got the touch
Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright
But that won’t keep me warm in the middle of the night

That don’t impress me much
You think you’re cool but have you got the touch
Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright
But that won’t keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night
That don’t impress me much

Okay, so what do you think you’re Elvis or something
Whatever
That don’t impress me

Though Shania sings the song in context of guys, I get this general feeling whenever I meet anyone (of either gender) who tries to impress (the rest of) us with their materialistic possessions or their useless knowledge, they just end up boring us n making a fool of themselves. So you got everything but do you have the things that matter, for example let’s say imagination, wisdom, inner peace, joy?? Now those are the things that would actually impress me, but sure they are very rare in the jokers who show off their banal stuff…this showing off has reached new lows with social media…some people will just update you on all the places they go to eat, or the pics of stuff they bought!! …oh hello, ohhh really?? Now what are we supposed to do?? get impressed??? sorry folks…we just end up laughing at you..get over your petty materialism n show us something real.
